    Sporty Spice

    Are you as excited as I am to finally say buh-bye to winter? To get in the proper frame of mind for spring, I'm stocking up on sporty looks that take their cues from the playing field. Fashion types call it sportif, and it was all over the runways this season, from Richard Chai's "tennis dresses" to game-ready styles by up-and-coming label Ashish. I love this trend, in part because it's especially flattering on big girls, with its comfy shapes and forgiving fabrics. So rock your inner athlete with varsity stripes, jersey textures, and neon details. For more fashion finds, be sure to check out my blog,, and follow me on Twitter @nicolettemason.
